The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

If Hicks went back for Vasquez instead of Gorman, I think there could've been more survivors and less consequences for the sequel. Hicks had his pulse rifle and would've blown away the ALIENS coming for Vasquez. There would be no need to use a grenade to kill themselves like Gorman & Vasquez did, which in turn caused Newt to fall through whatever it was she fell through from the blast LOL. Hicks and Ripley wouldn't have had to look for Newt which lead to Hicks getting injured, Newt getting captured, Ripley having to look for her and fighting the Queen which lead to an egg being laid on the Sulaco and Bishop being ripped in half. No egg, no acid burning through Ripley's cryo impregnating her and causing a fire that aborted all cryos into an EEV. It might've ended with Ripley, Newt, Hicks, Gorman and Bishop all tip top with only Vasquez needing medical attention. Thus eliminating ALIEN 3 all together. Obviously this wouldn't be as exciting or suspenseful for the movie, but it certainly would've saved lives and changed what happened after ALIENS the movie.

At first glance Hicks may had a better chance than Gorman, but
if Hicks would have gone back to check for Vasquez, Vasquez would have still acid wounds slowing everyone done, which may still lead to Next running upfront and getting lost etc.

Firing a Pulse Rifle at such close distance would still mean acid burns for them besides getting at least tinnitus from the noise.
Consider that they were surrounded by the Aliens a Pulse Rifle would help much.
Even without acid the dead Aliens would have just blocked all their ways out.

If that would happened in the larger corridors Hicks with a PR (and enough ammo) could have made a difference.

Anyway that raises for me the question did Gorman consider that their might be no getting out of this alive for him and Vasquez?
